Recognising that for some people it may still be a little daunting to start getting out and about in our towns and villages, Horsham District Council is working with local cafes and restaurants to launch a new campaign, ‘Tea at Two’, to encourage visitors into our towns in the afternoons when it is generally quieter.
The District cafes and restaurants will be offering a range of attractive tea time promotions from two o’clock each day.
Commenting on the new Tea at Two initiative Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for the Local Economy Cllr Paul Clarke said:
“This is a lovely idea which will help residents and visitors step out with more confidence to enjoy a catch up with friends over tea and coffee in the afternoons when things are a little quieter.
“We have been working with our local hospitality businesses across the whole district to support them coming out of lockdown, helping them put all their social distancing and protection in place to make this a safe and enjoyable experience.
“They are delighted to be welcoming back their customers with their special Tea at Two promotions.”
Chair of the Horsham BID Willie Hamilton added:
“Tea at Two is a great idea. The time is now right to find our town and village centre community spirit again after the isolation of lockdown.
“Shopping is no longer just about going to the shops, it is about socialising and showing support for our communities.”
“As well as enjoying Tea at Two, shoppers visiting the town centre in the afternoons will find fewer queues to visit their favourite stores and more space for social distancing across the town,” said Gill Buchanan, Swan Walk Centre Manager.
Look out for businesses displaying Tea at Two posters and window stickers to let customers know about their special promotions after 2pm.
As well as being open with COVID-safe measures in place for dine-in customers, Horsham District cafes are open for takeaways too.
